Better Yourself. Better Your Family.
Better Your Community.


As a leading nonprofit, the Y is the place where families have fun and spend quality time together, kids play and build character, adults develop ways to live healthier and neighbors connect with their community.

Download a one-week guest pass and try the Y for free from July 1-31.

Free Guest Pass - July

A free one-week family/adult guest pass includes use of the gyms, wellness areas, group exercise and water fitness classes, indoor pools and child watch services at the City Center, Lampeter-Strasburg and YMCA at New Holland branches. Use of the Lampeter-Strasburg branch Outdoor Pool is not included with the free one-week guest pass.

Membership For All

We believe everyone deserves a chance to learn, grow and thrive, so the Lancaster Family YMCA offers financial scholarships to individuals and families who might otherwise not be able to afford membership or program fees.

Through the Lancaster Family YMCA Financial Scholarship Program, families and individuals who want to participate in Y membership and Y programs, but can’t afford to pay the full fee, can receive financial assistance to help offset the cost.

YMCA Financial Scholarships are available to help pay for Y memberships and programs such as summer camps, preschool, after-school childcare, swimming lessons, youth sports and wellness programs.

Anyone with an annual household income of $50,000 or less is eligible to apply for a Y Financial Scholarship towards Y membership or programs.

Financial Scholarship applications are available at the Welcome Desks of our City Center, Lampeter-Strasburg and YMCA at New Holland branches or by downloading the following file.
